I don’t know. But her hair was so grandma Margaret. Sausage curls.

I was told that she and her parents lived part time on a train car for some years. I believe my great grandfather worked for Amtrak and they traveled a lot. So maybe not necessarily for vacation.

Ok. On the 1940 United States Federal Census it says that a Martha Jane Lunt was 11 in Indianapolis with a Margret and Donald Lunt. But the same census also asks where you lived in 1935. It says New Orleans, Louisiana.

Donald J Lunt comes up with John (Jack ) A Lunt on ancestry. So maybe I am wrong because Marty’s father is Jack Lunt. But I think the Donald is a mistake on the census maybe. The 1940 census says that Donald Lunt’s wife is Margaret and they have one only one daughter Martha Jane in Indianapolis in 1940 and he was a petroleum field representative.

Nice work on all of this ! I see exactly what you mean on the 1940 census and agree that it would likely be Jack, since the other details for ages, birth locations of Margaret Lorimer and Marty are all in check. New Orleans def has palms too. I think you prob identified the place here! Maybe somewhere in her archive of stuff I’ll find a New Orleans address.
